Garden Treasurers

I enjoy the flowers in my garden but I also cherish the little treasurers I tuck here and there in the garden.

My son gave me this little blue bird for Mother's Day. His wings flap in the breeze and I wish you could see the look on his face. I am sure he just found the bug of his dreams.

A young girl and her kitten dream in the shade while a green gazing ball reflects the leaves sighing in the slight breeze. I found this small statue in the basement of a house my husband was remodeling and brought her home.

An old metal chicken water nestles among the flowers. I once used it to water the birds but it now has rusted through and won't hold water.

Pots of flowers snuggle on a small wrought iron bench.

A trio of small cherubs frolic in the bushes. I think they have been naughty boys and have been in the vineyard picking grapes before they are ripe.

An iron bird bath keeps the roses company. For some reason birds will not use this bath. I have to suppose they don't care for the rusty water. I was wondering if I should try to seal it with something so it doesn't rust. Has anyone tried this?

This is my husband contribution to the garden. I asked for another water feature and he agreed if he could pick the fountain. So now we have Pee-Pee boy tucked into a corner under the Dogwood tree.
A small cherub guards the bird bath while he creates a work of art.
Let me know if you like to tuck treasures in your garden.

I think little statues and birdbaths and all that really do add a nice touch to gardens. And your garden looks so pretty. I like how you have treasures tucked in here and there. Thanks for sharing your garden pictures with us.
